James Wyld (1812-1887) was a British publisher and cartographer. His greatest geographical achievement was Wyld's Great Globe, exhibited in Leicester Square between 1851 and 1862. The globe, sixty feet high and lighted with gas, was at that point the largest ever constructed. He was geographer to Queen Victoria and H.R.H. Prince Albert.
